Description:

This Friends of SNCC chapter worked to educate other students and local people about the harsh reality of segregation and racism in the South. They marched against police brutality after “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama. Below you can see a picture from that protest. One protester held a sign that said, “freedom to suffer until they die?” Also, the chapter actively worked to spread information about the every day violence and the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party election. Chairman Laura Fisher educated others while staffing a table on campus, a picture of which can be seen below.

Members:

  • Lauren Fisher, Chairman 1965
